Jessica Mauboy, who is a coach on The Voice Australia, reportedly married her long-time partner Themeli Magripilis in a small church in Darwin. This was followed by a reception at Mindil Beach Casino Resort.
According to the Northern Territory Times, the singer married her partner in a ceremony attended by 300 of their closest family and friends.
It was a private event with only close family and friends in attendance, but that didn’t stop Jessica Mauboy’s wedding from being a beautiful event. The bride reportedly wore a stunning wedding dress and had dry eyes as she said her vows to partner Themeli Magripilis. The couple met almost 10 years ago and have been together ever since.
The reception reportedly took place on the lawn overlooking the beach, with a large marquee filled with lanterns.
The 32-year-old spoke to host Natalie Barr on Sunrise about the wedding. Matt Shirvington was the fill-in host for the occasion.
“You’re busy aren’t you? You’ve got a wedding to plan. When’s the big day?” Barr asked Mauboy.
“Honestly I don’t have an actual set date, I’m just trying to suss out who’s in town – all the family particularly, obviously now everyone wants to travel,” she responded.
“I’m sure it will be a Darwin big family feast because all my mob is up that way,” said the singer.
Mauboy shot to fame at age 16 when she appeared on Australian Idol. She later moved to Sydney to pursue her music career.
Barr joked, “No micro-wedding for you.”
“It’ll be probably the sunset and the beach, you know.” Mauboy said.
In October 2019, Jessica Mauboy reportedly became engaged to her long-time partner Themeli Magripilis. The pair have been together for 3 years and are now finally ready to tie the knot.
Magripilis, who was born in Darwin, proposed to Mauboy in Greece. The couple’s families came together for the ceremony, which was officiated by Magripilis.
“The love of my life proposed to me in his family’s home town of Kalymnos, Greece, on the beach at sunset.” she said.
“We are so happy. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Thank you for all the love. BIG LOVE JM & Themeli.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Voice Australia coach Jessica Mauboy and her long-time partner Themeli Magripilis have had to postpone their wedding. The couple, who met when they were 18 years old in Darwin, have been together for seven years. Magripilis moved to Sydney in September 2016 to be with his girlfriend Mauboy.
